HARTSVILLE, SC (WMBF) – Some homeowners in South Hartsville will soon receive help in restoring their residences due to a Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI) developed through a partnership with Darlington County Habitat for Humanity and the South Hartsville Neighborhood Association.

“This is a ‘neighbors helping neighbors’ kind of project. We will be a vehicle for the Neighborhood Association through overseeing the work being done and providing the donated materials but this is something that the community itself is driving,” said Mark Haenchen, Habitat for Humanity Executive Director.

The assistance will include home improvements projects such as weatherization, exterior painting and staining, and repairs to exteriors, interiors and floors, according to a news release from the City of Hartsville.

The NRI program will give area residents the opportunity to volunteer together to enhance the community’s quality of life.

The Byerly Foundation has already delivered a $60,000 grant to Habitat for Humanity for the program’s primary funding.

“$60,000 can be used to build a home and impact one family or $60,000 can be used to help restore numerous homes and impact many more lives throughout the community,” Haenchen said.

Anyone who would like to volunteer or donate monetary or building materials, can contact Habitat for Humanity’s Hartsville office at (843)-383-8500 or visit the Restore at 120 W. Washington Street.
